Hey crafty pals, I’m back with another project using the Alexis kit! This time, I used the physical kit and a mix of goodies from previous FJ collections to create a set of pocket pages!
It’s become a little tradition of mine to document my birthday each year in my personal album, using the February collection of each year. I was excited to continue that tradition this year with the vibrant colors and fun patterns of the Alexis kit!
I used a few of the journaling cards from the kit, and also made a couple cards using the patterned papers. The large 4x6 card I made is definitely my favorite part of these pages - I used the Alexis heart stencil and absolutely love the way it turned out!
To get those gold hearts (seen on two of my journaling cards), I used the stencil and gold modeling paste. Using a palette knife, I scraped the modeling paste through the stencil and then let it air dry completely. I love the dimension this gave the layout!!
The large 4x6 card was created using the modeling paste technique I described above, along with an acetate number, and puffy titles/alphabet stickers. I love the mix of textures and the messy look of the card. I finished it off with splatters of gold craft spray.
I wanted to get as many of the gorgeous colors and patterns in this layout as I could, so instead of using full 3x4 sized photos, I trimmed them down and backed them with a 3x4 card. This also allowed space for more embellishments.
To bring the gold throughout the rest of the layout, I splattered gold craft spray here and there, where it felt like it fit.
I really love the way this layout turned out, and cannot wait to use that stencil again on future projects!
I’d love to know - what are your favorite ways to add dimension to your projects? How have you used the Alexis stencil so far? Let’s chat in the comments below!
I’ll be back next month with more crafty inspiration. Until then, I’ll see you in the FJ Facebook group!
